Naming all 16.7 million colors may keep the kids entertained for a few minutes.
Crayola is looking for your help. The brand is giving unique names to ALL 16.7 million colors represented in the 24-bit color space, and they want your input. Did you even know there are 16.7 million colors? Go to ColorNames.org and make an entry! Your creativity may be rewarded with a color officially named by YOU. You will always have an interesting fact about yourself for those awkward icebreakers.
There are some rules: the name you come up with has to be descriptive, it cannot be offensive, and you can’t use a corporation name either. You can suggest a name for any of the 16.7 million colors on spectrum, even ones that others have already submitted names for. The site allows for visitors to cast votes on entries, and if two names are suggested for the same color, the one with more votes will win out.
